Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire specialists at the elementary level to teach languages and technology which would ensure teachers have a prep period each day and eliminate some of the extra evening work.

What I like about the company

The district and union work closely together to compensate its employees.

What I dislike about the company

Though teaching hours are widely known as more than a typical work day, sometimes there are expectations to work into the evening on job related tasks without additional compensation. However the district was revolutionized how it compensates for things like professional development.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The change in leadership and administration will provide a fresh start for positive change. Previously, leadership functioned as a sort of dictatorship. I'm looking forward to a positive culture with room for communication, transparency, and growth.

What I like about the company

I work within an urban/suburban school district with a high latino population. The school district works well with families by connecting them to resources and information to assist with addressing barriers to poverty. I am thankful to work within a team of 20 social workers who help with these efforts. The district understands the needs of these families living in poverty and responds with a focus on resources and an emphasis on college and career readiness. They provide training, leadership opportunities, and tuition reimbursement to allow staff to grow professionally and personally.

What I dislike about the company

There needs to be a more intentional effort in seeking employees who better reflect the diverse student body and community.
